It's A New Year

A new year.

Just when I could say the date without pausing to think of what year it was...

Everybody is about resolutions today. It will be all over the news. Teachers will ask their students. Parents will ask their kids. 'What are you going to do to improve this year?'  'What are you going to commit to doing?' Most people will say the usual, "lose weight, exercise more, be healthier".

I was trying to think of some out of the box resolutions even though I should probably concentrate on the "typical" ones.

I came up with:

*Try not to eat a handful of M&Ms when I get up or for that matter, before 10 am.

*Do something about the single sock problem we have in our house.

*Teach the kids how to wait on me and do chores.

I am pretty sure these are not going to hold much more water than the exercise or lose weight resolutions. That's ok. Because I think the most important resolution that I could keep is to be kinder to myself this year. So if things don't turn out perfectly, I won't be sweating it. I will just tell myself to have a seat on the couch, grab a good book, a glass of wine and some M&Ms and just relax.

I wish that resolution for the rest of you too: Be Kinder to Yourself.

Happy 2014!!
